This course teaches you how to use the IML procedure via the programming language. You benefit from this course if you plan to use SAS/IML for manipulating matrices, simulating data, writing custom statistical analyses, or working with R. The programs in this course require SAS/IML 12.3 or later to run.The self-study e-learning includes:

- Annotatable course notes in PDF format.
- Virtual lab time to practice.

Learn How To

Create and manipulate matrices. Move data between IML matrices and SAS data sets. Simulate data. Write, store, and retrieve IML modules. Run SAS procedures from within IML. Interface with R from within IML.Who Should Attend

SAS programmers, statisticians, econometricians, engineers, or others who want to use matrix algebra, simulate data, write custom statistical analyses, or work with R from IML
